Funfetti Cake Batter Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast? Yes please.

Here are the 3 things that came together as the perfect storm, bringing me to this amazing idea of cookies for breakfast:

1. Have I mentioned how much I love food? I’m not one of those girls that skips a meal or orders a garden salad for dinner. Never have been. I’m from an Italian family that has history in the resturant and bakery business. I was born and raised to think about dinner as soon as I wake up in the morning.

This means I’m also thinking about dessert in the morning.

2. Add to that the fact that I’m always late. Always. So I’m constantly running out the door to work, grabbing whatever I prepped that week.

Sometimes I leave myself enough time to cook a big breakfast. But, when I’m on the run I’ve been known to throw a pancake in a plastic container- syrup and all- and eat it while driving. {Not an easy task, but well worth it.} Either way, I’m not one to deprive myself of a delicious first meal of the day.

3. And lastly, I’m obsessed with 2 foods right now: Kodiak Cake Mix & anything that involves cake batter.

These 3 factors resulted in 18 colorful, batter-y, filling breakfast cookies.

What makes them a breakfast cookie you ask?

Well, the main ingredient is a flap jack mix. So they taste almost like a biscuit, which is very satisfying in itself. On the other hand, they’re also sweet and much more moist than a regular biscuit. Plus…sprinkles.

I guess you’ll just have to try ’em and find out what they’re all about.

Ingredients

  • Funfetti Cake Batter Breakfast Cookies
  • 1 1/2 cups Kodiak Cakes mix
  • 3/4 cup applesauce (I used unsweetened- if you want a sweeter cookie obviously you could go with sweetened and adjust the macros)
  • Sweetener of choice (I used vanilla Sweet Leaf drops)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1 package sugar-free, fat-free vanilla pudding
  • 2 scoops vanilla or cake batter protein powder
  • Sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Being the lazy cook that I am, I just mixed this all together and plopped 'em on a baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 9-12 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack. Store in the fridge- trust me, you'll thank me later.
